Progressive slot games are essentially games of slots which comprise of a jackpot that continues to grow as players keep on playing the game. Progressive slots can be both machines that run independently in which the jackpot goes up on that machine alone, or they can involve a whole network of slot machines, which can either belong to one specific casino or a multitude of different casinos, joining together to create one huge progressive jackpot. In order to make the jackpot grow and become much more lucrative and sought-after, a small percentage of the cost of each game is put towards the jackpot, thus enabling these types of jackpots to be significantly bigger than those on conventional slot games.
What is a jackpot meter?
A jackpot meter is a common feature of all progressive slot machines and basically reveals what the present value of the jackpot is. In order to attract players, a jackpot meter is typically brightly-coloured, large and positioned for all to see on top of the slots machines. As people try their luck against the slots machine and pile money into it, the jackpot meter literally goes up as you watch. Slots machines online have jackpot meters as well, which can be found inside the software of the casino.
What are max coins?
It is important to remember when you are involved in progressive games is to place a max bet so that you are entitled to win.

Can you imagine the disappointment of winning the huge progressive jackpot, only to receive a much tinier payout as you failed to put the max bet on.
